Can you imagine having a shot at your dream job at just 12-years-old? Well, James Lighfoot literally did just that. After Maltese production company VSQUARED caught wind of his skills, they invited him over to their offices to spend a day with the professionals.
James met up with some of the key players at VSQUARED to try his hand at some professional video directing. They took him through all of the important steps of video production and helped make his own short film.
Step 1: Storyboarding
James sat down with Bruce, the creative director, to discuss the film’s plot and hash it out scene by scene.
Step 2: Production
Together with the rest of the team, they gathered all the props they needed for the shoot and got ready to film.
Step 3: Filming
Justin, the director of photography, gave James a quick tutorial on how to get the perfect shot. They got in all the footage they needed, and then it was off to editing!
Step 4: Editing and VFX
With all the filming done, it was off to the editing room for some final touches. The magic of visual effects was all James needed to take his film up a notch.
And that’s a wrap!
TBH we’re super jealous of James, not just because he got to live out his dream for a day, but also because he’s super talented.
We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Malta’s latest filmmaker!
